WATCH: Jim Wilson named interim Tory leader
Tim Hudak resigns from the post on Wednesday
2 0

Jim Wilson will be trying to heal what he refers to as an unhappy Tory caucus.

The Progressive Conservatives have appointed the veteran MPP as interim leader.

Tim Hudak announced he would be stepping down from the job Wednesday after his party lost a number of seats in last month's election.

They began meeting at eight in the morning and after about an hour the Tories picked Wilson as the person to replace Hudak.

The former PC house leader will hold on to the job until the party holds a leadership convention. That is expected to be scheduled in the coming week.

In the meantime, a leadership race has already begun with Deputy Leader Christine Elliott the first to  throw her hat into the ring.

Hudak vows to stay on as MPP.

    I am the brains of the Ford operation.

    Watch out, Christine Elliott.
    I will be the leader of the PC's ... because I am the brains.
